The sky is quite literally the limit.

Toronto high school basketball star Toby Fournier first made a name for herself in a viral dunk at just 14-years-old.

And then became an international sensation last summer by dunking in a game at the FIBA World Basketball Summit.

Toby continued to solidify her reputation as a gifted 6-foot-2 power forward and a prodigous talent at the forefront of the next generation of women's basketball players in Canada.

Up next?

Ranked number 10 on ESPN’s Class of 2024, she had a competitive NCAA recruiting season and announced her commitment to the Sisterhood at Duke University under the guidance of Olympic gold medalist and former WNBA star, Head Coach Kara Lawson.

The Senior Women's National Team invited her to summer training camp as its youngest participant and she immediately began to prove her potential with court time in the exhibition game against Japan.

Now, she has her sights set on a spot on the Paris 2024 Olympic Team.

Before she headed into grade 12 Toby joined Team Canada (U19) for the Women’s FIBA World Cup in Madrid, Spain.

The result? 

She averaged 16 points and 14 rebounds leading Team Canada to a bronze medal and earning a Tournament All-Star along the way.

The word phenom gets overplayed but then an athlete comes along that makes it look so easy at such a young age that you just have to use it. 


Still a year away from centre stage at one of the most storied basketball programs in the world, the high-flying future for Toby Fournier can’t come soon enough.

In the meantime, she'll finish high school at Crestwood Prep, focus on building a collegiate career at Duke University, make a run at the Paris 2024 Olympics and, ultimately, enter the WNBA draft.

Hoop dreams.
